@DavidCarlisle You're right... it's the bad (or good) habit of trying not to depend on the OS, anyway it's a great project, I hope to see it in action soon :)

@DavidCarlisle Fine with me: we are not tied to anything

@JosephWright (sorry for always bothering you with my L3 related questions): How could I write a test in l3build which needs multiple files (because I have to somehow write tests for the class/package option package)?

@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz Put them in a support folder inside testfiles: see for example l3kernel and tests for file input

@JosephWright thanks, I'll take a look :)

I get an overfull hbox warning from the following code (and I'm totally lost on why):
\input{regression-test}

\RequirePackage{expkv-opt}

\START
\OMIT
\makeatletter
\newcommand\setoptions[2][\relax]
{%
\unless\ifx\relax#1%
\def\@currext{#1}%
\fi
\expandafter\def\csname opt@\@currname.\@currext\endcsname{#2}%
}%
\ekvdef{known set}{keyA}{}%
\ekvdefNoVal{known set}{keyB}{}%
\setoptions[pkg]{keyA,keyB=value,keyC={value, with a comma}}%
\TIMO
Forget about it, found my stupid mistake :)

Morning @DavidCarlisle

@JosephWright will look...

@JosephWright well one can certainly discuss some design decision, but I don't think that he is right when claiming, that you can't find the central information. On all sites the "we are a group supporting TeX" and "what is TeX" is prominent and easy to find.

@UlrikeFischer also there is the issue that new users who need to know what tex is don't start (or join or use) the user groups, they come here....

@JosephWright you saw the error I mentioned yesterday?

@UlrikeFischer No

@JosephWright there is a variant missing: \cs_generate_variant:Nn\prop_put:Nnn {cxx}

8:33 AM
@UlrikeFischer REally?

@JosephWright oh, then I need to recreate the formats to get this.

@UlrikeFischer Yes: for testing, I'm just adding the appropiate variants at the start of my test file

@JosephWright today texlive update has taken care of this.

@JosephWright what's happened with www.tex.ac.uk and redirects to texfaq for the old cgi-bin/texfaq2html url, I thought they were working before?

@DavidCarlisle It was: @StefanKottwitz any ideas?
@DavidCarlisle Perhaps something to do with having to move the DNS? But that was working ...
\printindex

With the option nonewpage it's impossible for imakeidx to call automatically makeindex, because the index file has to be closed before the last page is shipped out and entries in it would be lost. Assuming your file is named ahorn.tex, you have to run pdflatex ahorn makeindex -s debugging ahorn...

@UlrikeFischer I even read the doc and it doesn't mention this:-) not sure why imakeindex can't force a makeindex run next time by writing to the aux file? I should look at at the code one day, not tonight though:-)

@DavidCarlisle i have been wondering too if the new shipout would work, but not tonight either ;-)

@UlrikeFischer alternatively I'll have to do what the doc at latexcgi says I plan to do which is to add a % !TEX makeindex possibility to force a makeindex run (gets more like arara every day, but written in a proper language:-)
